Crown The Empire, Of Mice & Men
MAY 7 2015 | Electric Factory, Philadelphia, PA
Crown The Empire
Random trip to Philly left me in town during Of Mice & Men’s headling tour featuring Crown the Empire and Volumes. Things this night went awry but I was still thankful enough to get in, grab a few shots and drink too many over priced beers. After a lot of confusion at the box office I found myself in the back stage green room while Volumes was finishing their set. OM&M basically decided to not offer press passes for most of this tour, but my new friends in Crown The Empire were nice enough to get me in and let me shoot their set.
On the plus side I was able to shoot their entire 35+ minute set rather than the first 3 songs rule. I’m not particularly familiar with CTE’s music but their fans sure are. There was tangible give and take between the audience and the band and I enjoyed getting acquainted with a part of the scene i’ve completely lost touch with.
Of Mice & Men
Didn’t have access to the pit during OM&M’s set but was still able to snag a few shots with an over-priced beer tucker between my elbow and ribcage.
